Another Christmas present from my sister: The Ciate London Haute House Collection. Ciate always does the cutest gift sets featuring their Mini Paint Pots. This set boasts a “wet-look high-shine gloss colour in a newly formulated Patent Leather finish.” You get four shades plus a silicone top coat that really boosts the glossy shine.
It was the shade offering that really drew me to this set; I think the colours are effortless and classically chic. The shades from left to right are: Dare to Bare (Nude), Good to Be A Goddess (Navy), Silicone Top Coat, Can’t It Be Kinky (Black), and Mostly a Minx (Deep Red). I’m wearing Mostly a Minx in the pic below.
These polishes make good on their claims. They really do shine like patent leather. They’re also very fast-drying. I applied two coats of polish plus the silicone top coat, and my nails went from wet to un-dentable in less than an hour. Ciate claims that these polishes are perfect for a date-night mani, and I would agree!
